The happiness brought by dogs is immeasurable, at least for dog-loving individuals. This is the reason why there is a tinge of sadness whenever a dog owner loses his dog in whatever way.
A homeless man in Memphis, Tennessee sure knows this feeling. Later identified as Anthony Rogers, the man living on the streets recently reported that his dog was missing. He realized that his dog was missing when the dog was not on his side when he woke up.
Rogers’ dog is a Pit Bull Lab mix, and he said the dog means the world to him. He named the pooch Bobo. When he realized that the dog was missing, Rogers asked his friends if ever they saw the dog. Unfortunately, none of his friends saw Bobo.
The dog owner then went to the police to report the incident. He and some police officers later posted flyers around the area in the hopes that someone saw the pooch. Rogers was brimming with positivity that he would find his pooch. Rogers also received help from his friends, who helped him in searching for the dog.
Rogers’ search for his dog ended when he received a call one early morning. It came from the Memphis Animal Shelter. According to the person he spoke with, someone found the dog. The animal shelter staff added that a concerned citizen informed them about the dog’s whereabouts. The volunteers immediately went to the place and saw Bobo there.
For his part, Rogers immediately went to the animal shelter. There he saw his beloved pooch waiting for him. Their reunion is rather heartwarming because the pooch showed so much excitement to reunite with his owner.
In a video uploaded online, it showed that the dog jumped for joy and wagged his tail excitedly when he saw Rogers. Happiness is also evident in Rogers’ eyes because he was smiling during the reunion. He thanked the animal shelter for helping him to make the meeting possible.
💙 TEARJERKER REUNION ALERT 💙Anthony is an artist who found himself homeless after some devastating events in his life. He doesn’t have a place to live, and he doesn’t always have food to eat. But he has a best friend, a sweet dog named Bobo. And he always makes sure Bobo has enough to eat. A couple weeks ago, Anthony woke up to find Bobo was gone. He was distressed and immediately contacted friends to help him look for Bobo. They made signs and put them all over town. They talked to the people who knew Anthony and Bobo. When a dog matching Bobo’s description showed up at MAS yesterday, one of our employees, Emily, recognized Bobo immediately! She called the number on the LOST poster, and Anthony’s friend gave him a ride to the shelter within minutes to see Bobo again. Their reunion was pure joy. Bobo could not contain his happiness at seeing his dad again. Today Bobo got neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated, and we found out he was heartworm negative. We sent him back to Anthony with a year’s supply of heartworm prevention, a bag of dog food, and a harness, leash, collar, and ID tag. Bobo is healthy and happy, but he needs to keep going to the vet every year to stay that way. If you’d like to donate toward his continued care at Utopia Animal Hospital so that’s one less thing Anthony has to worry about, call 901-746-8758.Music: Dreamcatcher from https://www.purple-planet.comhttps://www.gofundme.com/f/help-anthony-and-bobo-get-back-on-their-feet
